    How to Apply

    Important Dates

    • Applications due: December 15, 2016
    • Interview notifications sent: Early January
    • Interviews (rehabilitation track): Weeks of January 16 and January 23, 2017
    • Interviews (general track): January 31, 2017 (Tuesday preceding the February INS meeting)

    Application Process

    The program currently participates in the Association for Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN) match (note that the general and rehabilitation tracks have separate identification codes). Applications for our Neuropsychology post-doctoral residency program are not submitted through the APPIC portal.

    Individuals who are considered appropriate candidates for this residency program must have obtained a doctorate degree in clinical psychology and/or clinical neuropsychology from an APA-accredited program, as well as an APA-accredited clinical internship.  Applications from individuals whose training programs are not accredited at the time of application will not be reviewed.  Because this is a postdoctoral program, we also do not accept applications from people who are ABD (all but dissertation) candidates at the time the fellowship begins.

    Please send a letter outlining your interests and track(s) you are applying to, background experience, training goals, and the opportunities you seek during your postdoctoral residency (along with a current curriculum vitae and unofficial transcript of all graduate work) to the director of the postdoctoral residency program by December 15, 2016.  Three letters of recommendation should be submitted.  One of these must include a statement from the training director of the doctoral program that all requirements for graduation, including dissertation, will have been completed before September 1 and/or the start date of the residency for the following year.  Application materials may be sent electronically or by mail.

    Applicants will be notified by early January if they will be invited for an interview.  Finalists for the rehabilitation track must attend interviews onsite in Phoenix the weeks of January 16 and January 23, 2017.  It is highly desirable to interview all applicants in person, therefore the interviews for general track applicants typically occur on Tuesday preceding the February INS meeting (usually a representative of the program will also be at the National Academy of Neuropsychology meeting to informally address questions about the program).  In rare circumstances, a detailed telephone interview may be arranged.

    Residents selected for training will be notified on the date designated by the APPCN.  Please note that if information were to come to light after the match that would have precluded us from selecting you as a candidate, we reserve the right to withdraw our offer.

    Application materials can be sent to:
